For the past three years, English Bluff Elementary has been actively working towards becoming a fully accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) school. We are excited to announce that in the summer of 2018, we received our official accreditation. As a result, and in order to meet the costs associated with being an IB World School, we would like to share with families the new fee structure that will be implemented beginning in September 2018. While these fees are necessary to meet the associated program costs (including increased staffing, an expanded French program, association program fees, resources and the like), the School District is committed to keeping these necessary school fees to a minimum.
APPLICATION FEE (New Registrations Only)
A $100.00 application fee is required for all new students entering the IB program at English Bluff (international students are also expected to pay an application fee through the International Programs Department). This application fee is due at the time of registration and is required to secure a place in the program. Should you make an application for your child and we are unable to accommodate that application (due to shortage of space, or other circumstances that may preclude admittance), then your $100 application fee will be refunded. However, should your child(ren) be offered a spot at English Bluff and the offer is declined for any reason; the application fee will not be refunded.
The first term fee payment is also due on the date of registration. Once a school term has begun, families will not be eligible to receive a refund in whole or in part for that term. However, families are entitled to full reimbursement of any paid term that has not yet commenced.
All fees are based on a 10-month cycle (September-June) and can be paid either in a one lump sum payment or three scheduled installments.
